Young Yaz scores run for O's in loss to Red Sox
By Maureen Mullen/AP

Red Sox Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski was in the stands and watched his grandson score a run for the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday in their 8-6 loss to Boston.

Mike Yastrzemski played in his first major league spring training game. The 23-year-old entered as a pinch runner in the sixth inning, scored and then played right field. He was hitless in one at-bat.

The younger Yaz was the Orioles' 14th-round draft pick last June from Vanderbilt. He hit .273 with three homers and 25 RBIs in 57 games in short-season Class A. The Red Sox drafted him late in 2009 out of a Massachusetts high school, but he went to college.

Mike Napoli hit his first homer of the spring for Boston.

Felix Doubront started for Boston, going two scoreless innings with a hit and three strikeouts.

Orioles starter Brian Matusz gave up two hits in two shutout innings.
